Every die hard fan of cricket remembers when Sachin retired. His records were believed to be invincible and India thought it would be a while before we see another batsman of such calibre. Then comes a young lad from Delhi, Virat Kohli, who earlier captained India’s U-19 team to a World Cup victory scoring a century in the finals. And voila! India found its new star.
Records were shattered, bowling attacks were ruthlessly destroyed and scoring centuries became a habit. Criticized for his arrogance and unruly behavior on the field initially, Virat Kohli now represents the aggression, passion and hunger for victory of the new Team India. Gusty centuries in crucial matches, great innings on foreign soil, flamboyant strokes and hunger to win, make Virat Kohli one of the best batsmen in international cricket today.
